Typus: Admin interface for Rails applications
Typus is designed for a single activity:
Trusted users editing structured content.
Typus doesn't try to be all the things to all the people but it's extensible enough to match lots of use cases.
- Access control by users and roles.
- CRUD and custom actions for your models on a clean interface.
- Extensible and overwritable templates.
- Low memory footprint.
- MIT License, the same as Rails.

If you want to be able to use
delayed_job you need to add the following
two lines to your
map.connect "admin/delayed/jobs/:action/:id", :controller => "admin/delayed/jobs" map.connect "admin/delayed/jobs/:action/:id.:format", :controller => "admin/delayed/jobs"
And then create and configure
config/typus/delayed_job_roles.yml as you do with your other models.
# config/typus/delayed_job.yml Delayed::Job: fields: list: ... form: ... search: ... # config/typus/delayed_job_roles.yml admin: Delayed::Job: all
